Good place, large portions

This is a good place for a gyro and other Greek items. I had a lamb gyro sandwich with a side of fries. The sandwich was tasty but not truly authentic. The side of fries was large enough to share with 2-3 people. My co-worker's chicken gyro platter was also huge with portions that could feed 2... read more

This restaurant runs most of west Philadelphia and knows it! Living in west Philly and working at a major hospital in west Philadelphia your options for delivery are somewhat limited. Greek lady makes a generous size salad and their gyros are mediocre. However, my entire medical floor and myself have stopped ordering after having an issue every time we order.... More

I ordered a bacon egg and cheese on a bagel and it was the worst thing I have ever eaten. The bagel was horrible quality and there was literally zero bacon in my bagel or in my friend's.

I've been to the Greek Lady more than ten times by now. The reason I keep going back is because I can always rely on it for great, delicious and usually healthy food! This restaurant has great hours too so I can go whenever I'm graving a yummy veggie gyro. I'm vegan so I usually end up getting the veggie... More

The Greek Lady is a busy, sometimes noisy spot near the U of Penn campus, so most of the diners are students and U of P staff, some folks from the neighborhood. Order at the counter and they bring you your meal (so leave a tip, for goodness' sake, because they also clear your tray, etc.). Food is fresh and... More

I'm happy that we took the recommendation to eat at this restaurant while our dog was going through diagnostic testing at the Univ. of Penn. It was a quick, 10-minute walk from campus. We arrived shortly after 11:30 a.m. and I'm very happy that we did...because by noon the line was almost out the door! I had the chicken gyro... More

yummy pita sandwiches but I hate their hummus. They put french fries on everything. I'm not sure if I like that. But for lunch, it's a nice change from the usual.

During my summer school at Wharton, I discovered the Greek Lady and its absolutely delicious Grilled Veggie Pita. The staff was always friendly, smiling and welcoming. The no-fuss food and generous portions were a delight to me as a student then. I'd definitely visit the place when I go to Philly again. (I frequented this place during June - August... More
